Everyone knows how important the brain is.  It is responsible for the directing the entire operation of the human body.  Yet, how many of us know how to consistently live a lifestyle that betters the health of our brain?  With cognitive decline being highlighted in our society with the meteoric rise of Alzheimer’s and dementia, it is time for us to take a serious look at how we can improve brain health, especially as we age.

For years science has thought that there was no way to halt the death of brain cells that control our aging process.   But recent discoveries in neuroscience has actually showed that we can grow new brain cells (neurogenesis) at ANY point in our lives. When the rate of neurogenesis is low, that’s when we experience memory loss, cognitive deficits, anxiety, stress, depression and lowered immunity. With high rates of neurogenesis, we flourish and demonstrate rapid learning, mental acuity, emotional resiliency, robust health and much more.

Today we welcome Dr. Brant Cortright to the show.  Dr. Cortright is a highly respected clinical psychologist and Professor of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies. His consulting practice specializes in cutting-edge brain health and neuroscience-informed depth therapy.  Dr. Cortright shares the formula of how to increase the brain’s rate of making new brain cells! His remarkable new breakthrough book The Neurogenesis Diet & Lifestyle: Upgrade Your Brain, Upgrade Your Life captures the newest science on how to rev up brain cell growth.

Listen in as Dr. Cortright shares his scientifically validated 4-point program of diet and lifestyle will that will improve your memory and brain power, inoculate you against stress and depression, prevent or delay cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s and enrich your relationships and sex life.
